Billionaire Terry Waya’s wife officially joins Benue governorship race

Susan Waya, wife of Benue State billionaire Terry Waya, has informed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of her intention to be nominated as the party’s candidate for the governorship election in Benue.

Mrs Waya told reporters after picking up her forms at the party’s secretariat in Abuja that she was hopeful of being nominated.

“Our priority is to restore our beloved state back to its glory days and build a more productive and diversified economy by investing heavily in security, agriculture, infrastructure, health, power, ICT, and tax cuts,” she said.

Waya noted that she plans to initiate a social investment scheme to improve the living condition of the people of Benue.

“It is time to move away from the past. We cannot continue to support or vote based on sentiments. It is important to support and vote for someone who is capable with a proven track record of performance over the years,” she said.

“I present myself, not because I am a woman or a mother, but because my wealth of experience in the private and public sector has earned me tremendous knowledge, skill, and capacity to understand the numerous challenges of the Benue people and proffer long-term solutions.”

Susan is so far the only woman in the 2023 governorship race in the state. She is also the mother of Big Brother Naija star Kiddwaya.
